Sydney Opera House Site Entry Project Completion
We are delighted to advise the safe and successful completion of precinct upgrade works to the entry at the Sydney Opera House from Macquarie St and East Circular Quay for the Sydney Opera House Trust.
Over 28 weeks of construction, 22,000 hours were worked to improve the entrance to the Australian Heritage Landmark, including security upgrades, an improved mobility access and a renewed main concert hall entrance under the Monumental Steps.
The precinct upgrade works to the site entry of the Sydney Opera House is now present of enhanced security entrance. Over 540m2 of repaving was laid further to the installation of 50 PAS68 rated bronze bollards including 7 with a removable design.
Furthermore, 30 wall panels were installed for the construction of the new 1:20 ramp and 1:9 ramp for the improved mobility access. Both ramps were finished with LED light strips to illuminate the entrance of an evening. Heritage upgrades were also undertaken to the existing balustrades.
Precinct upgrade works under Monumental Steps saw 1,700m2 of repaving laid in an Architectural Fan Pattern further to 100 precast floor panels.
Further works under the Monumental Steps include the construction and installation of:
- 30 metres of brass slot drains
- 19 metres of new brass grated drains
- 60 metres of services trenches
- Tie beam remediation works
The works compliment our recent successfully completed projects within The Rocks including the award winning Campbell’s Cove, The Rocks Centre and Argyle Stores.
Congratulations to everyone for bringing this project to a safe completion and a special thanks to the site team, subcontractors and suppliers.
